about the exhibition

In the late 1990s, art and music became sites of inspired and energetic interaction. This exhibition brought together the work of 31 leading Australian and international contemporary artists whose work showed an active engagement with rock, pop or techno music, taking them out of a strictly visual realm and into the world of bands and clubs, music videos and recordings. Many of the artists were musicians themselves, or music fans whose love of a particular pop culture genre had influenced their art practice. The works in the exhibition included video and audio works, painting, sculpture and installation, and explored the appeal and inherent compatibility between art and music. The exhibition included a video program of short works and video clips.

A special concert was held on the evening of Thursday 20 March 2001, with performances from Lee Ranaldo and Christian Marclay, Gerwald Rockenschaub, Carsten Nicolai (aka Noto), and Marco Fusinato.
